"Don't Forget" for your Road Trip!

Road trips, such as on the famous Highway 1 in California,
are a summer tradition in America. 
Whether road trips are a fond childhood memory, or an annual tradition, there are some things to keep in mind to make sure your trip is fun and doesn't run flat!

1) Get your car thoroughly looked at before you leave by a trusted mechanic. (Or, get a rental! If you're traveling a long distance, a rental might be the most cost-effective versus putting mileage on your car.)

2) Pack extra snacks and water, in case you get stuck in the middle of nowhere and have to wait a while for a tow. Personally, I also have a flashlight and sleeping bag (for winter road trips), in case you get stuck in the snow.

3) Plan your route ahead of time, or make sure to have paper maps in addition to electronic navigation. You never know when you'll run out of signal, battery, or your device will just… break!

4) Invest in AAA! Whether you lock your keys in your car, get a flat, or have a dead battery, AAA can easily pay for itself in just one service call.

Once you're prepared, it's time for the adventure!  Be flexible and let the road lead you!  Safe travels.
